INTRIGA CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2014

Maipo Valley

(Viña Montgras)

Hand-harvested from 30-year-old vines and aged

for 20 months in French oak. This is a typically full,

round, complex wine that offers rich black fruit, cassis,

chocolate, vanilla and spice. This is always a refined,

impressive wine, particularly when served with fine

cuts of steak.
